Learning to relish uncertainty, with Dr. Carla Fowler

Episode 70.   “I think that our sense of happiness and how we feel about things, is both something we can influence through our perspectives, but I also think it is related to,  “Are we spending time on things that most matter to us?” and, “Are we clear on what does most matter to us?”


In episode 69, Linda spoke with Dr. Carla Fowler, an MD PhD and elite executive coach. For the last decade, Carla has been a secret weapon for scores of CEOs, entrepreneurs, and other senior leaders. Her unique approach combines the latest research from performance science with timeless best practices to help top performers level up and achieve their goals.


In this episode, Dr. Fowler and Linda continue their conversation with how our feelings impact our goals. They also talk about Linda’s struggle with creating a future vision which leads into a conversation about being with the uncertainty that often shows up as we pursue our goals. Plus, Dr. Fowler discusses the question, should we play to our strengths or try and strengthen our weaknesses? And, how having a growth mindset plays into it.
